Hm well the rtld bug this workaround is for only affects the
pulseaudio and notify knobs, and the workaround doesn't work for
the notify knob so it would only cover half the cases, and also
checking if this is needed in the port would require a
__FreeBSD_version bump which is probably overkill for this bug.

 So I think we'd rather mention the workaround in UPDATING, along
with the bugfix commit link...

 Thanx, :)
